Just does not connect...

I am having a hard time continuing with this book. In every Russian or Scottish or other novel based on a genre or cultural group, one of the things that can help immerse you on the story are the great use of accents by the actors who read them. This entire Russian family talks like I guy from middle Ohio.... just made an “okay” story blah and bland. VERY disappointing....

Needs Duel Narration

I was hoping to hear a Russian accent in the narration, but I did not. I
love to listen to a narrator who can deliver a good Russian accent. In addition, duel narrators were desperately needed. If these two errors were to be corrected, the series would have been much better.

Good Series not great!💜

I have reviewed each book individually and submitting them here as my box set review!

Book 1
I really enjoyed this storyline but there were some areas not so much.
IMO it didn’t really have a Russian Mafia feel to it. Maybe because the main character as well as other characters didn’t have a Russian accent or very little, I’m not sure. That said, I did enjoy the story overall. The narration was okay he has a good voice.
This is book 1 with an HEA but the story continues.

Book 2
This book has a good storyline.
I am enjoying this series but IMO it’s not as much a Russian Mafia series as it is a great romance crime/drama. I’m not sure what’s going on with the accents, but they don’t feel right to me. I’m not sure if it’s a creative decision on the part of the author or the narrator.
Let’s talk narration. I want you to know that I don’t usually go this in depth on the narration but I feel like it’s important that sometimes you need to give a narrator a second chance.
First, the narrator has a fantastic voice and I can tell he’s got what it takes for voice acting. That said I have 3 things to add.
1st, there were a lot of technical issues with sound quality and repeated sentences.
2nd, after researching Tyler Darby (because again his voice is very good) I realized that this book was recorded a couple of years ago. So, it’s likely his recording skills have improved.
3rd, I was right. I found a book that he narrated and I reviewed last year and I loved his narration with no issues.
I encourage everyone to read/listen and always form your own opinions. This is book 2 with an HEA and a cliffhanger and continues in book 3.

Book 3
This review is much like my review for book 2. This series a great storyline but seems more like a romance crime than Russian Bratva. I’m feeling like it’s the lack of Russian accents but even if was reading rather than listening, it doesn’t seem as dark as I expected. IMO It’s still a good story just not for a mafia type. I’m borrowing a portion of my review from book 2 as my opinion didn’t change.

Book 4
This series was good overall but it really bothers me that this story in book 4 makes book 3’s hero look weak and Alec treated him like he was not good enough to be part of the family. I love Christian and I love Alec and all the men in this series. I also understand the need to build up the main character but many series do that without the need to make a hero less in the other books. This is more than two alpha males not getting along. Anyway, this is just my opinion but for some reason it really hit me wrong. I encourage everyone to read/listen and form their own opinion, always. The narration was very good. I believe this is my first book with narrator Craig Hart but it won’t be my last. This is book 4 and has an HEA.

Boring

Boring monotone voices. I usually love Russian mafia stories and even better that it was in a boxset. More books for 1 credit was looking like a winner to me but I could barely get through the first chapter. So I skipped a bit to see if it got better.....nope. Waste of a credit. Gonna pass.

3 stars for me

I think since you get all 4 stories this is worth one credit. There seemed to be some areas were the narration repeated or where there seemed to be some editing issues. Overall this was a 3 star for me.

honestly I couldn't finish

I'm kind of really disappointed at the fact that I always look to see how many narrators there are cuz I like the female and male narrators and it said there was a bunch of narrators it's a series book awesome great and then I start listening to it and can't even get past the prologue because it's all the same narrator very disappointed

aweful don't waste your money

plot was so jumped around. every book the main girl had a body of a porn star. like thats flattering. the other books that float around this books are a really good read. but this author on her own was very good at all.

Really struggled to listen to this

I forced myself to make it about 1/2 way and couldn't take it anymore. Pales in comparison to other mafia themed books I've listened to.

had to return it

I was looking forward to this but sadly had to return it part way through the first book. I personally found the all male narration hard to follow, I kept getting lost which character I was listening too as there was virtually no change in tone when read the female parts.

Good storyline’s with good characters

I enjoyed these books and the characters with good female leads.
I did find it a little disconcerting with the male narration throughout voicing the female character chapters.
